EWS Beauty, the makers of the cool-girl favorite Raw Juice Cleanse Sheet Masks, just released Plant-Based Milk Sheet Masks made of compostable material and sustainable packaging. They sound like delicious, bespoke lattes, like Matcha Almond Milk for radiance and Blueberry Coconut Milk for skin firming. Each one will leave you feeling refreshed!” —Morgan Maloney, Creative Manager

I know I’ll be spritzing it on to boost my mood through the winter.

“You can’t save “October” and “beauty” in the same sentence without talking about Halloween makeup. And the new collaboration between Gen Z makeup brand Lottie London and The Vampire Diaries has more than just color-changing lipstick and the perfect “blood drop lip tint;” the line has an important, life-saving message.
